Submission Preparation ChecklistAs part of the submission process, authors are required to check off their submission's compliance with all of the following items, and submissions may be returned to authors that do not adhere to these guidelines.
- The submission has not been previously published, nor is it before another journal for consideration (or an explanation has been provided in Comments to the Editor).
- The submission file is in OpenOffice, Microsoft Word, or LaTeX document file format.
- For the review process, authors must submit a PDF version of the article. For the article to be published, we will require LaTeX or Word source files as well as any associated graphics files. For convenient, Authors should use a minimum of user-defined macros, and logical, standard LaTeX markup rather than hard-coding formatting.
